Soy-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

3 large sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp mirin or sweet sherry
1 Tbsp minced garlic
3 Tbsp soy sauce / tamari
1/4 cup water
(1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted)

   Heat the oven to 400. Cut scrubbed s.p.s lengthwise into quarters. Put them in a baking dish roomy enough to hold them in a single layer.
   Combine the rest of the ingredients except the seeds. Brush (or pour) over the s.p.s, cover tightly with foil, & bake until nearly tender, 50-60 minutes. Remove the foil. Baste with the juices, & return to the oven till the liquid is reduced to a glaze & the potatoes are fully tender, 15-20 minutes more. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Yum. (good leftover too)
